Albert Pujols Chooses Hollywood over Miami Beach



While the Los Angeles Angels' signing of free-agent first baseman Albert Pujols to a 10-year contract for around $255 million stunned the baseball world, there was a development that was even more remarkable.

Pujols actually left money on the table.

Pujols rejected the Miami Marlins' offer of 10 years, $275 million a day earlier, according to two people familiar with the offer but not authorized to discuss it due to the sensitive nature of the negotiations.

MLB Network analyst suggested that the Marlins "NO-Trade" team policy was the obstacle that kept him from moving to Miami Beach, even though the money was there...

With incentives and no state tax in Florida, the actual value of the deal could have been worth nearly $300 million.

Pujols also turned down an offer north of $200 million to stay with the Cardinals, and the fact he left his longtime team despite such a lucrative offer to stay no doubt will emerge as a narrative in St. Louis.

Looks Like Jose Reyes is taking his talents to Miami Beach, Mets out of the running for the Shortstop


According to Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal, the Mets are officially out of the bidding for free-agent shortstop Jose Reyes, according to a baseball official briefed on the negotiations.

The team was informed Sunday that the Miami Marlins increased their offer to Reyes to six years and more than $100 million, the official said, effectively ending whatever hopes the Mets had of re-signing him.

The Mets had been willing to offer five years and up to $80 million, with a vesting option for a sixth year. But according to the official briefed on the negotiations, Reyes's agents informed the Mets that Reyes would not accept such a deal.

Marlins offer Jose Reyes Six years, $90 Million, Hanley Ramirez not happy about it?


The Miami Marlins' introductory bid for Jose Reyes was six years, $90 million, as Foxsports.com first reported.

In addition to that going for them, the story cited a source saying the potential of playing in a warm climate, which would lessen the risk to his hamstrings, as well as playing for Ozzie Guillen, would be attractive to Reyes.

Meanwhile, Marlins beat writer Clark Spencer tweeted that Hanley Ramirez is not happy about potentially switching positions for Reyes. Tweeted Spencer (@clarkspencer):
"Ramirez is not at all pleased at prospect of changing positions if #Marlins sign Reyes; the two aren't the friends many portray."

The Mets have not made an offer , but can offer more...So this is not over yet... And there is already friction is brewing in South Beach between Hanley and the Team. Wonder if Hanley is the trade piece to get all the extra parts for Mr. Guillen, this should get interesting if he is traded for Reyes, but doubtful as the plan seems to have them together in the same Lineup..
